I happened to stop by before making my way into the actual town of Jerome. It really helped me find my way around and decide what I wanted to do once I got into town.

My husband and I had been told by several Sedona locals that we should not miss touring the town of Jerome. We had a train ride booked at 1:00 pm so decided to drive up to Jerome, have breakfast, do some shopping, and tour the museum. We ate at the Mile High Bar & Grill - amazing breakfast. Good service,... More

nice history of the area. great for a geologist or rock lover. Clark put this town on the map and they don't talk about him very much. they talk alot about the next owner becasue that is the guy that donated the property.

A great educational and interesting visit adding yet another great reason to venture up the hill to Jerome. Tons of information on the mining operation and the colorful folks of the town

This is a "don't miss." Enjoy the picnic area with stunning views. Then go inside & watch the 28-minute video which is very informative. I was fascinated by the 3-D model of Jerome in 1937, which shows the underground mines / fault lines / train tunnel. Rock & mineral specimens are displayed, as well as a comprehensive look @ the...

The display inside the house provides a good summary of the history of Jerome. What attracts me most is the view. The parking lot provides a great view of the Jerome town and surrounding area. A reminder that there is no cafe in the park building, so be prepared to eat in town before or after the tour.

Go early in the day and make it your first stop so you can get the history of the town. Very old pieces from mining times and good stories. Will make you appreciate the trip farther up the hill. The shopes are very different than you would think for a town that looks likes it is falling off the side... More

No other place in Jerome or the Verde Valley offers so many ways to appreciate and learn about Jerome as the State Park provides. Just the huge 3-D cutaway model of Cleopatra Hill with all of its historical mining tunnels is worth the price of admission. The mansion itself is a walk through time. Your exploration of it will put... More
